In honor of National Heart Health Month SD Mom’s Night Out thought it only fitting to support a cause that directly affects moms, women in general. We are pleased to be supporting the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women Campaign.
Many of us don’t know it, but heart disease is still the #1 killer in women! According to the American Heart Association (AHA), “causing 1 in 3 deaths each year. This means women just like you – mothers, sisters, friends – are dying at the rate of one per minute because they don’t know what you know: heart disease kills.”
The Go Red for Women Campaign was created in 2004 by the AHA to help dispel the myths and help raise awareness of heart disease in women. Today this passionate, emotional and social initiative is designed to empower women to take charge of their heart health.
Moms, let’s face it, we are always taking care of someone else. At the SD Mom’s Night Out Heart Yourself Event we want to help spread the word and build awareness of this awful diseases by giving you a night out you will never forget. Let’s celebrate life and remember that it is just as important to take care of ourselves as it is to take care of our loved ones.
We are honored to have Holly Green, mother of two, author of More Than A Minute: How To Be An Effective Leader & Manager In Today’s Changing World, CEO/Managing Director of The Human Factor, Inc. and heart attack survivor come to share her personal story with us at the event.
